Auckland A v Northland A - 8 November
Auckland A have made a strong start to their season with a convincing victory over Northland A. The talented young side batted first in Whangarei and thanks to several strong scores by their top order set a tough total of 290 from their 50 overs.
The innings was led by strong early work from Mondiale Ace Glenn Phillips and Suburbs New Lynn’s Michael Barry. Phillips finished with 44, while Barry top scored with 58. Hong Kong international Mark Chapman also added 50 to back up his strong club form in the last round.
The big total didn’t intimidate Northland early however after they held off Auckland’s opening bowlers to be setting well placed at 79/1 at the first drinks break after 17 overs. Tight bowling from the visitors then restricted the chase and Northland couldn’t push on from their strong start. The Northland batsmen couldn’t get a solid scoring rate going and were eventually dismissed in the last over for 227. Well short of the total. Sean Solia led the Auckland bowling figures taking 4/33. Michael Barry also earning praise after backing up his work with the bat with 2/35.
Auckland A 290 (Michael Barry 58, Mark Chapman 50, Glenn Phillips 44) defeated Northland A 227 (Sean Solia 4/33, Michael Barry 2/35) by 63 runs.
